LIES THAT BIND
John 8:44 (NLT)
44 … the Devil, …has always hated the truth. There is no truth in him. When he lies, it is consistent with his character; for he is a liar and the father of lies.
For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does .The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 2 Corinthians 10:3-4
Stronghold: ochuroma (okh-oo'-ro-mah); to fortify, a strong castle, a prisoner locked by deception.
WHAT LIES HOLD YOU HOSTAGE?
I CAN’T CHANGE
…we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so that we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. Ephesians 2:10 NLT
masterpiece: poiema (poy'-ay-mah); a product with a designated purpose, workmanship, masterpiece.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation ; the old has gone, the new has come!
2 Corinthians 5:17-18
THE STRATEGY FOR CHANGE
1.) RENEW YOUR MIND.
Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2
Identify False Beliefs-Replace with God’s Truth
We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:5
…whatever is true…noble…right…pure…lovely…admirable-if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-think about such things. Philippians 4:8
2.) SPEAK ONLY TRUTH.
From the fruit of his mouth a man's stomach is filled; with the harvest from his lips he is satisfied. The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit. Proverbs 18:20-21
May the words of my mouth and the thoughts of my heart be pleasing to you, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer. Psalms 19:14 NLT
3.) NEVER GIVE UP.
To this end I labor, struggling with all His energy, which so powerfully works in me.
Michael Anglelo “The Agony & the extassy”
agonizomai (ag-o-nid'-zom-ahee); to struggle, to compete for a prize, to contend with an adversary, and win.
…But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:13-14
